A former All Progressives Congress lawmaker, Shehu Sani has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of plunging the masses into a state of untold suffering by increasing electricity tariff and pump price of fuel, while diverting the attention of Nigerians with open grazing.
In a tweet, the former lawmaker lamented that the Federal Government got approval for $6Billion foreign loan and N895 supplementary budget without challenge.
Sani tweeted: “While northerners and southerners attention are diverted to debate on closed or open grazing, the FG is increasing tariff on electricity, jacking up pump price of pms and getting approval for $6Billion foreign loan and N895 supplementary budget, without any challenge from anywhere.”
President Buhari had backed the return of cattle grazing paths, allowing herdsmen trail designated routes across Nigeria.
Buhari made the remark during an interview with Arise Television.
Despite the President’s stand, state governors from the Southern part of the country have expressed their displeasure with open grazing.
The governors have severally insisted that they have no open grazing routes in their states.
